the world. i'm fareed zakaria. starting with robert gates, former secretary of defense under president bush and president obama. i read his new book and found that he actually agreed with obama on iraq, afghanistan, iran, all the issues of substance. so, i'll ask him to explain. >>> also, the u.s. economy. how much will it grow in 2014, 2%, 3%, 4%? wall street is wondering, but it doesn't really matter. what does gdp describe anyway? >>> negotiations in iran are beginning again soon. what's the best strategy going forward? neuroscience can help eliminate the issue. >>> and lots of people call bs on their politicians. somebody in france actually went a step further. >>> but first, here's my take. president obama gave a much-anticipated speech on friday, outlining reforms in the american government's surveillance activities. before i give you my reaction to the speech, i want to give you some context. the american government and many american companies are routinely the targets of cyber attacks from all over the world. for example, the national nuclear security administration, which is an arm

the white house. >> the white house on the defensive after excerpts were released, a devastating critique about president obama. >> there's a lot in the book that could be damaging. >> did you confront the president about his lack of passionate that time? >> i talked to the president about the need to speak out about the importance of the war and why it was important for the troops to be there. >> never really had a passion pursuing the war in afghanistan. and that kind of bothered you. >> it's one thing to tell the troops you support them. it's another to work at making them believe that you believe as president that their sacrifice is worth it. >> president bush did that i did not see president obama do that. it was this absence of passion. absence of conviction of success, that disturbed me. where i have particular problem with the vice president is his encouragement of suspicion of the military. >> i think it's fair to say the book is a lot more critical about people around the president than it is of the president himself. >> joining me now to explain more is the author of the brand

to the state department says in its own defense, is that the very first investigation of this, which was by an independent board that the state department is mandated by congress to appoint, called the accountability review board, or report camehe arb very close to the actual attacks just a couple months afterward, and it really blasted the state department for a lot of security reaches and failings and sort of failure to think ahead, basically, is one of the main findings, as it is in the senate report. as a result of that, the state department has really made quite a number of changes over the last year. there have been additional security measures in place to many overseas embassies and other facilities, and certainly a greater deal of attention is being paid to communication with intelligence agencies on site, which is one of the recommendations, and to making sure that the people who are potential consumers of that intelligence, ambassadors and other high-ranking state department people who might be moving around in dangerous , ines, are better informed some ways sort of an duly
